Spoilers for Season 5, Episode 6 “Devil You Know” follow.

Ever since I started binge-watching Terence Winter’s “Boardwalk Empire” last summer, the show has often left me with mixed feelings. Throughout the series run, there have been a handful of plots and characters that mattered very little in the grand scheme of things.

It’s a show that is far from perfect, but it still has some of the greatest production design and cinematography that I have ever seen in a show. Not to mention the occasional episode, like last season’s finale “Farewell Daddy Blues,” that will leave your jaw on the floor.

“Devil You Know” doesn’t quite pack the same punch, but it felt like an episode where the loose ends are starting to be tied up.

Spoilers after the jump.
